Wednesday - Cherish your ugly cucumber

Kromkommer is basically a project to promote pride in growing, eating and buying bizarrely shaped fruit and vegetables that would normally be discarded.

According to recent reports, almost 2 bn tons of food are going to waste every year and in NL alone 2 to 2.4 billion Euro of food end up in the dump.

5 to 10% of veggies are thrown away because of their "looks".

The good people from Kromkommer are working to get more restaurants, supermarket and markets to sell and use not-so-pretty vegetables and avoid useless spillage.
